Our choices, when it comes to eating, have more power than we realize. I’m a businessman and there is nothing I love more than a deal that is truly win-win. Nutrition is one of those rare win-win-win-win situations in life where what is best for us health-wise is also what is best for the world around us, for the animals we share this planet with, for the beauty and health of the natural world, and even, I would humbly suggest, for the care of our self and soul. What we eat is not just personal; it is political and of great consequence to the communities in which we live- local, regional, national, and even global.
